Feb. 1, 2023

The Independent Tire Dealers Group LLC (ITDG) has named Jason Rook its next president and CEO. Rook will replace Dave Marks, who is retiring this year after successfully leading the group for the past five years.

Rook assumes his new role on Feb. 1.

Rob Slagle, chairman of ITDG's board, says Rook "brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the position and is well-suited to lead ITDG into the future."

Prior to joining ITDG, Rook had worked for Tube and Solid Tire since 2013 and was promoted to CEO of that company last year. Before working at Tube and Solid Tire, he worked at St. Louis Wholesale Tire.

"ITDG is a member-owned buying group representing over 1,000 independent tire and auto service locations in 45 states across the country," according to ITDG officials.

"The group is committed to providing its members with the best products and services at the most competitive prices, as well as offering support and resources to help them grow their businesses."

"We believe that Jason will be an excellent leader for ITDG and will continue to build upon the strong foundation that Dave has established," says Slagle. "We look forward to working with him as we continue to serve our members and drive the success of the independent tire dealer community.”

Rook has an extensive background in the automotive industry, with more than 20 years of experience in sales, marketing and management. 

ITDG officials say he is "passionate about helping independent tire dealers succeed and is looking forward to working with the ITDG team to support and grow the organization."

"I am honored to have the opportunity to lead ITDG as its new president/CEO," says Rook. "I am excited to work with the talented team at ITDG to continue providing value to our members and helping them thrive in this competitive and dynamic business environment."

Rook will work closely with Marks to ensure a smooth leadership transition.
